That's all for today!
As you probably guessed, I'm back from the San Jose conference and from my
vacation in Hawaii! The conference was fun as usual, especially because I
had a chance to catch up with lots of old friends. The Google Dance was
pretty cool, but I was a bit annoyed that they ran out of t-shirts by the
time we got there. So we cried and whined to enough folks who had the
t-shirts until finally a few took pity on us and gave us theirs! (Thanks to
the woman -- whose name I've forgotten -- who gave me hers!)
Hawaii was awesome (of course). I had a nice visit with my sister and her
significant other, as well as my parents, plus I was reunited with my
daughter Jamie. She wasn't real thrilled about coming home with me, but she
didn't kick and scream too much!
The cool thing about being in Hawaii was that with the 6-hour time
difference, I was able to wake up around 7AM and get online to get the scoop
on everything that had happened in the Boston office while I slept. I could
put out any fires and do some work, then be finished up by noon when
everyone on the East Coast had gone home for the day. This gave me the rest
of the day to play at the beach or whatever. I can see why my sister likes
having her own company out there as she can do the same thing if she wants.
(She doesn't...but she can if she wants!)
Better get going. Only a million and one things left to do today.
Catch you in 2 weeks!
